Potential ways to save money while traveling by cab include booking in advance, using coupons, comparing prices between different companies and sharing rides among multiple people. Additionally, trimming the ride by a few blocks on either end and walking saves time and money.
Many cab companies offer discounts for rides booked in advance. The amount in advance, whether a few hours or days, varies depending on the company. Similarly, some companies offer discounts via coupons on the company website or print publications, such as tourist guides found at airports. Taking the time to research different company's fares in advance provides the knowledge to look for the least expensive company's cabs.
